ed its toughest test of the sea-
here last night by defeating
a, 83-71, to capture the NCAA
etball championship.
jae Dons became the third team
collegiate history to capt--re
coveted title two years run-
. The victory also extended

put on a magnificent exhibition.
The champs shot with great ac-
curacy, passed effectively and
played a tight defensive game.
Bill Russell, 6'10" center for the
West Coast squad, finally lived up
to his rave notices. Russell was
the high scorer in the game with
26 points-but that was only the
beginning. He was also a tower of
strength off both backboards and
played excellently on defense.
In the consolation round, Temple
displayed a powerful offensive
game as it stopped Southern Meth-
odist, 90-81. Co-captain Hal Lear
went on a tremendous scoring
spree as he pumped 48 points
through the cords.
Lear's game total was an indi-
vidual record and his 160 points
in the tournament was a new four-
game NCAA playoff high.
Iowa Gets Fast Lead
In the opening minutes of the
championship contest it looked as
if an upset was in the making. The
Dons started slowly and the Hawk-
eyes sped to a quick 15-4 lead.
But Iowa's shifting man-to-man
defense started breaking down and
San Francisco moved closer. With
5:51 remaining in the first half,
the winners finally went ahead.
After the intermission the Dons
kept applying the pressure. Russell
connected for five straight points
at the half-way mark to boost his
team's lead to a 62-47 margin.
The crowd-the majority root-
ing for Iowa-were thrilled when
the Hawkeyes made their last
move. Four straight points by Carl
Cain and Bill Logan reduced the
lead. to 76-69 with on two minutes
left in the game. But that was as
close as the Big Ten champs could
ever get the rest of the way.

special To The Daily
STILLWATER, Okla. - Mike
Rodriguez and Jack Marchello
downed two men apiece in yester-
day's preliminaries of the NCAA
Wrestling Tournament to qualify
for this afternoon's semi-final
round.
The big news again was Rodri-
guez who pinned both his oppon-
ents in his quest for the national
crown.
Wrestling in the 157 pound divi-
sion, which is once again loaded
with talent, the Michigan captain
will face Doug Blubaugh of Okla-
homa A&M this afternoon for the
honor of meeting the winner of
the match between Illinois' Larry.
TenPas and Oklahoma's Jerry
Bross, a battle which is termed a
toss-up.
Another Grudge Match?
TenPas, of course,'is Rodriguez'
old foe, whereas Bross, relatively
unknown to Michigan fans, is a
champion in his own right, hav-
ing eliminated Iowa's John Winder
in yesterday's action after Winder
downed Dave Johnson of Pitts-
burgh.
Johnson is the only grappler to
have defeated Rodriguez this
season.
Marchello, who was praised by
Michigan's assistant coach, Bob
Betzig, handily decisioned his pre-
liminary opponents in the 167 divi-
sion but will have the test of his
short collegiate career on his hands
today when he faces Fred Davis
of the Oklahoma A&M Aggies, the
defending champion.
Frank Hirt and Dan Deppe, the

Wolverines' other two entrants,
each dropped a preliminary match,
but both have chances for the
consolation rounds for third and
fourth places if their conquerors
place in the final round.
Hirt Barely Defeated
After taking an initial victory
at 130 pounds, Hirt lost one of the
closest matches of the meet to
Ken Townley of Iowa State. Near
the end of the final period, the
two were tied, 1-1, when Townley
gained a two-point takedown on
a fast move.
Hirt quickly escaped to bring
the score to 3-2 but was unable
to get the match-winning take-
down which he needed.

In the quest for their 18th na-
tional title the Aggies of Oklaho-
ma A&M are being hard-pressed
by the University of Oklahoma
with Iowa and Pittsburgh putting
in strong bids.
As a result of the preliminary
action the Sooners held a 19-18
edge over the Aggies but the latter
pace all teams in the number of
semi-final qualifiers with seven.
The Sooners have five men left as
does Pitt, resting on an 11 point
total. Iowa follows closely with
10 points and four qualifiers.
Michigan, admittedly not in the
race for team honors, neverthe-
less has gained a sixth place tie
by virtue of its seven point total.

Gcgnier Gains
In NCAA Meet
Special To The Daily
CHAPEL HILL, N.C.-Versa-
tile Ed Gagnier fell only eight
points shy of winning the all-
around in the NCAA gymnas-
tics meet here tonight, as Don
Tonry of Illinois outscored him,
1493 to 1485.
The Michigan flash qualified
for the finals today in the par-
allel bars, with a second, and
the high bar, coming in fifth.
He came in 11th in the free
exercise and 12th in the side
horse, but only the top ten in
each event gain entrance into
the finals.
Illinois Big Ten champions
are the team leader in the meet.

Special To The Daily
MONTREAL - Mark Booth,
Michigan's talented high jumper,
leaped 6'4" here last night in thet
Eastern Canadian Indoor Trackt
Meet to set a new meet record.
Booth paced the highjumpingI
field with his mark-smashing per-z
formance at the Montreal Forum.I
It was the first time in threeS
years that the event was includedt
in the meet. -
John Moule, the only other Wol-
verine contestant, finished second
in the mile. The graduate student
placed behind Fred Dwyer of the
New York Athletic Club.
Booth and Moule bucked un-
desirable track conditions as they
turned in their top performances.
The track was still wet from the
melted ice of Thursday's playoff

hockey game between Montreal
and New York.
Another delegation of Wolverine
thinclads will perform in Chicago
tonight. Michigan is entering eight
contestants in the annual Chicago
Daily News Relays.
Captain Ron Wallingford will
run in the two mile. Jim Pace will
represent the Wolverines in the 60
yard dash, while Brendan O'Reilly
and Eeles Landstrom compete in
the high jump and pole vault, re-
spectively.
